Rescue Me ID: 15-06-15-00590Gizmo (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Female Dogs Only 
Personality: Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    This is Gizmo. Gizmo is one of THE best snugglers. Gizmo's day begins by waking up in his human's bed. He has various sleeping positions, all of them involve being right next to you. In the morning, he goes for a quick stroll to do his business, with breakfast following. Gizmo is SO intelligent and SO eager to please his people that he has learned to sit and wait to get his meals. He also sits and waits for treats. On work days, Gizmo grudgingly stays in an extra-large crate with bones and toys to chew. When his people are home, he has free-run inside. Outdoors, Gizmo uses a gentle-leader harness. He has not been tested off-leash, but of ... (Read More)course a fenced yard is every dog and dog-lover's dream. Gizmo has a fair amount of energy so daily exercise or heavy play-time is required. He has already shown a propensity toward agility training. He is young, strong, energetic, smart, curious and motivated-this combination of qualities makes him very trainable-he could certainly become a decorated agility champion. Gizmo loves people and occasionally gives kisses. He does very well when meeting dogs, he is very playful and gets along best with female dogs. He has lived with two females and one submissive male dog. The majority of the time peace reigned in the doggie kingdom, but at times of heightened anxiety (as when someone comes to the door) and sometimes around food, Gizmo showed dominance toward the male dog. It would be best for Gizmo to live in a home where he is the only male dog. He lived with two cats who were not very fond of him. He tends to be too interested in them and will chase them if they run. But, he did not hurt them. Gizmo knows: Sit, Come, Off, Down, Leave-it, Wait, No, the Chh-sound (like Caesar Milan uses) and he gives a paw. Gizmo loves being outdoors, because: grass. He loves to smell it, and roll in it, and plow through it with appreciation and delight. We think Gizmo is a practically perfect Pibble. We are looking for a foster and/or adoptive home for Gizmo. Please submit an adoption or foster application at www.pottersangelsrescue.org. Adoption fee applies. (Less)

Pit Bull    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Cats, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Abused/Neglected,
 Aggressive, Fearful/Anxious 

    Hi! My name is Douglas & I am a beautiful red nose pit looking for my forever home! I love my foster mom, but due to housing regulations, I have to find a new home. I had a rough life when I was little so I do have some fear based aggression issues. I am highly protective of my loved ones and can seem kind of scary if I don't know you, but it generally won't take long for me to get accustomed to you! I love snuggling up under the covers when it's time to go to bed, but if that's not you're thing, it's ok! I am crate trained and don't mind hanging out there (but I would much rather be glued to your side!). I have kind of a big mouth and can ... (Read More)be loud sometimes, but I'm working on getting better! I love running and playing with my toys. Please help me find a loving home! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-05-22-00082Eoyore (male)

Pit Bull    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Once abandoned in a vacant house by my 'so-called' family, my tiny pack-mate and I were named Eeyore (me) and Piglet (him) by the New York City shelter staff. However, my new foster mom said she thinks I should be called Einstein. And, not because I have a head of unruly white hair, because I do not. But, because I am the smartest pittie boy she has ever had the pleasure to work with! I assure you, those were her words, precisely. I gather my appearance can be misleading. My eyes droop in such a way as to suggest dopiness. I am eager to please and know, Sit, Down, Wait, and Come. I pick up on new commands very quickly. I sit and wait before ... (Read More)I eat my meals and before going in and out of doors. When I meet other dogs outside of the home am fine, however, within the home, I prefer other dogs to maintain calm and I correct them if they become overly excited. I consistently look to my humans for guidance and will follow their directions attentively. I am completely relaxed, non-destructive and housetrained, therefore, I am trusted alone in my room when my people are at work during the day, as well as through the night. When my people are home, I enjoy being close to them while they caress my soft velvety fur. I am initially fearful of strangers, so when visitors arrive I sit and wait, and my foster asks them to enter the home and just ignore me . . . and when I become comfortable enough to approach them, they give me treats. When I am out walking in public, I pay close attention to my human pack leader and to the task at hand, walking on leash-I am not distracted passing by other dogs or humans walking or biking. Now that it's summer, I also discovered that I enjoy cooling off in the water. Eeyore was emaciated when he was rescued from that abandoned house. It is estimated that he went without food for at least three-weeks. Understandably, he has some protective food guarding issues with other animals (not with people) which should resolve with a little more time trusting that he knows he has another meal coming, and with continued training. Eeyore would do best in a quiet and calm home which is why we are recommending a home without young children. Eeyore needs a confident leader so that he won't take on the role of pack 'protector.' His foster mom will provide training assistance to the person(s) that adopt him to ensure that he is successful in his new home. Eeyore's foster mom's final comment, 'He is a very good boy that deserves the best of homes.' Eeyore is a 55lb 5-year-old male Pit Bull. He is neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped.

Rescue Me ID: 15-05-11-00615Louise (female)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed 

    Geez, Louise! This petite brindle beauty is Louise. Louise is housetrained and is learning to walk well on leash . . . pulling a little, but getting better all the time. Louise listens intensely to her people and is eager to please and motivated by treats. She knows sit, wait and no; and is working on, come, off, lay down, back up, off, and leave it. Louise enjoys hard plastic chew toys and her foster mom bought a collection of Nylabones, special for her. If no one wants to play, Louise will happily entertain herself by dropping or tossing her toys and pouncing on them. Louise is fearful of sudden loud noises and reacts by jumping, crouching ... (Read More)and looking for reassurance from her person. Louise plays well with dogs her own size or larger, with whom she is submissively playful and respectfully reads social cues. But, those other pests, I mean, 'pets' also known as 'cats or small animals . . .' Louise is best not living with them. Little Louise loves her Lilliputians (children). She needs to be reminded to be gentle, but she is really very sweet: inviting them to play, accepting their patting and giving them love and kisses. Louise is happy to have big people play with her too. Sometimes she will invite play by nibbling on her people, and she needs reminders to use more appropriate methods. Louise sleeps in her crate at bedtime, and when her people are out. Louise is not vocal or whiney, but when she does let out a bark, the sound is so adorable that it evokes laughter. Louise has not exhibited any issues around food, but also has not been 'tested,' as she and her pack are routinely fed separately. She certainly has no problem with people sticking their hands inside her dish when she is eating. Louise is adoringly called 'Lou Lou' by her foster family. She has a happy-go-lucky personality, is easily corrected and loves pleasing her people. Louise's foster mom admits that, while she has enjoyed all of her fosters, that Louise has become her favorite. She tells us, she will be sad to let her go, but Louise deserves the best family possible. And, with just a little bit of training, Louise will be a fantastic dog for most any family. Louise completed treatment for heartworm disease. She is now a busy ball-chasing, toy tossing dog. She will require monthly heartworm prevention medication and annual testing. Louise is a 30lb 2-year-old female Pit-bull. She is spayed, vaccinated and micro-chipped. We are always looking for foster and/or adoptive homes. Please visit us at www.pottersangelsrescue.org to fill out an adoption or foster application. Adoption fee applies. (Less)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    In addition to causing cool people to break out in song, Lola is a very well-behaved girl who walks well on leash and knows sit, come, shake, stay and kisses. Lola is housetrained. When her people are out, she stays in her crate. While Lola complains vocally at first, and is initially disappointed in being crated, once she realizes that you will return, she is fine. She is a little standoffish at first. But once you've earned her trust, Lola is affectionate, joyful, playful, and eager to please. Lola has been fostered with young school-aged children. Lola's favorite game is fetch. Summer is here and the time is right for Ray Davies and the ... (Read More)Kinks on the radio, a Frisbee, the beach, and a dog like Lola!

    Meet Santa!!Santa's big velvety head invites patting. He has a nicely balanced energy and a desire to be your loving companion. Santa enjoys walks, wearing a gentle-leader, and does very well meeting new dogs on leash. Santa is a calm dude. Santa does well interacting with other dogs his size.

Rescue Me ID: 15-03-01-00116Oliver (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Incontinent 

    [Read About Natural Incontinence Care] Oliver is a silly, loud breathing, snaggletoothed cutie who has moved with me from Pennsylvania, to San Francisco, and now Vermont! We've been together for a good portion of my childhood, but I am moving back to California and there aren't options for us outside of rehoming while I'm still here. Read on for details- He is a 65 lbs, 11 year old Staffordshire Terrier with a beautiful brindle coat. He is potty trained and neutered, with a great reputation at the vet. He is an older dog, so he sometimes moves slow in the morning and at night. For the most part he's quiet and loves to sleep, but he can still ... (Read More)enjoy a good walk. He loves to play with tennis balls and sticks. He does extraordinarily well with children. I have grown up with this dog! Oliver and I moved out to California in 2011 when I was 15. Since then he's lived with my aunt and uncle, their two children (at the time 5 and 7 years old), and one other dog who Oliver did just fine with. Since then he's done great living with 2 (fairly grumpy) dogs. He needs to be let out about once every two hours, or he has trouble holding his pee. He comes with a crate to be put in when nobody is home. I am a 19-year-old starting my life, and rehoming Oliver will be a good step towards that. Thank you for reading! Please feel free to contact!

PIease Read Before Adopting a Pit Bull in Vermont
    Pit Bull Dogs can make good pets in Vermont if they match your IifestyIe. The American Pit Bull Terrier is a powerful dog with an undeserved reputation for inherent viciousness. A Pit Bull that receives attention, firm training, and thorough socialization makes a wonderful family guardian that is trustworthy with children. Pit Bulls need committed, experienced owners that exude leadership. Pit Bulls excel at high level obedience with proper training. Pit Bulls have been bred for dog fights, and unfortunately a dog that is abused, neglected, or whose instinctive aggression is encouraged, can become hostile and dangerous. Pit Bulls can adapt to apartment life with enough exercise.

lnteresting Pit Bull Trivia Low-Cost Vermont Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Some people believe that Pit Bulls are identical to what Bulldogs were in the past. Teddy Roosevelt owned Pit Bulls. A disproportionate number of Pit Bulls are put down in major American cities each year. American Pit Bull Terriers are very similar, and some argue identical, to Staffordshire Bull Terriers.
